5.0 out of 5 stars Comfy.well made a great price, 21 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been having probs with my wrist (a touch of Arthritis) and decided to send for this as a bit of support...It arrived very quickly and was pleasently surprised how well made it was (forget the 1 star reviewer)..It's a one size fits all and should fit most wrists...I have a medium to large wrist,but you adjust by tightening it as you see fit...The material is of a breathable type and even after 8 hours of wearing it my wrist was dry and comfy....Marks of course left behind but I have mine quite tightly wrapped..This won't be suitable for those looking for a more rigid support...there are plenty more out there to do this...this is purely for the wrist only (as shown on the diagram)...It's very comfortable and having just the one loop over the thumb makes it interfere less compared to other wrist supports so washing your hands means you don't really have to keep removing it.....Well made..comfy and a great price for what it does..Cheers

1.0 out of 5 stars Suspect damaged stock...worth a punt for 50P, 21 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mixed feelings on this particular product I bought from here...I already boughtg one from a local pet store costing me £2.50...so at 50p I thought I'd buy it as a spare....However...I was at least expecting it to work...When it arrived one of the batteries was leaking and there was actual damp marks on the outer packaging which makes me think these are very old and being bought as damaged stock...I replaced the batteries and found it actually worked...BUT..no different light patterns unlike the one I had bought from the pet shop....so there IS something wrong with them (faulty)...If you decide to buy one be prepared to either send it back (not worth it for 50p) or just hope it works but get some new battereis for it.(AG3)...
As to the product in general...it's a nice litte flasher and being rubberised it shouldn't hurt your pet when bouncing around attached to the collar...I would for security purposes just place a small piece of cellotape across the join where the two halves meet ...The flasher itself is quite bright and can easily be seen for around 100 yds...Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb torch, 18 May 2015
This review is from: Nitecore MT40 Ultra High (Misc.)
Bought this to replace a Cree torch which broke after dropping it (A cheaper Chinese version)....It did not disappoint.I already had the batteries to fit so I was able to test this right away...I would recomend the 18650 protected series as they are slightly longer so they will easily connect to the terminals...but if you have the cheaper ones,just fold a piece of tin foil several times to make up the thickness (it won't do any damage and works very well).
The torch itself is very well made and is easy to set up...You can activate the torch in turbo mode by just a half press of the button on the rear of the torch...a full press/click will actvate it fully and from here you can make adjustments and use the pre set modes.Turn the bezel on the front to the right and it will turn on the turbo mode...a turn to the left will go to the pre set mode....either Full...medium...half...low...SOS and strobe.
The light this torch gives off is remarkable and the spill (for me) just right...it has a good beam of around 175 metres and this will light everything up in it's path...after this it starts to taper off obviously...OH...it also comes with a spare O ring and O seal and an Anti roll ring...plus a well made carry belt/case and lanyard.
I actually bought this from the States for £30...I was visiting friends and they got it for me from Amazon over there...Would I have paid the UK price...YES...it's still worth it for as torch of this brightness..Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Review on the sound and picture, 8 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm Not writing my review on the movie itself as this is a more personal taste and by now when you buy this you should know whether it's a good or bad movie...I'm reviewing the disc itself and performance....The picture quality was top notch and pin sharp and the soundstaging and steering first class and if you have a sound surround system you will enjoy this very much...It came with the usual UV copy to download...I can reccomend this movie for sound and vision...Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made...4x2000Mah batteries...A Bargain.., 8 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a battery charger to give as a gift for someone in the States...This was actually cheaper then the USA Amazon but still sent for it due to any problems I might have encountered (which I haven't) I could have returned to Amazon UK...When it arrived it was wrapped in the usual hard plastic shell and the instructions were tucked away inside a carboard flap (not that I needed them) so be aware for those that need to read them as you might throw them away by accident..The batteries were not charged (well according the charger itself) and remember to remove the plastic contact sheet under the positive ends of the batteries before turning on...When I did plug it in the RED light at the bottom came on and after 2 hours (in this case) I heard a small beep to tell me they were fully charged...I tested them with my electrical techmetre..and they were reading 1.4 volts thoughout the 4 batteries...PLUS...and this for me told me the charger was a good one,the batteries were only mildly warm.I menttion this because I had previously sent one back to Amazon after I discovered it was cooking the batteries....this is a sign of a BAD charger....NO charger should cook the batteries...Sorry I digress....This charger is well made for the money and with the inclusion of 4x2000Mah batteries a real bargain...I can highly reccomend this charger to take care of your rechargeables, I'm pretty sure the person who will get this one from me as a gift will be well pleased...Cheers

Not much to say about a USB 3.0 to USB 3.0....but this is a good price for the length...I chose the 1.8 metre and it's well made too..the speed was not affected by the extra length compared to what come with a hub I have..Recomended..Cheers

3.0 out of 5 stars 2023 dated batteries seem to be leaking on some., 4 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My 3 star rating is based upon something I have noticed lately with Duracell batteries and something that other have mentioned in their reviews...Some batteries have started to leak of recent....more so on the ones dated 2023 which these are...I had some before I purchased there so now I'm wary....Wary because if they do leak they WILL and can cause a lot of damage.One set in particular have spoilt a nice torch I owned by leaking acid into the tube and now it's useless...I was not amused...there were the 2023 ones....I thinking that maybe this was a bad batch and I am in the process of writing to Duracell to see what there excuse is sending these faulty batteries out or at least not recalling them...I had bought these before I found out Duracells were having problems leaking and uptil now I had never had an issue with them...I'm storing there and my others dated 2023 in a tupperware container which is resistant to battery acid..Over all..these are a good price and delivered free,just be warned of the fault with some of them..Cheers
